People make fun of the 1976 expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brad Sham loves to quote head John McKay’s famous postgame quote where a reporter asked the coach about his team’s execution and McKay replied, “I’m all in favor of it.” But the reality is those same Buccaneers, under the same John McKay, played played in the 1979 NFC Championship game.

Their taking 10 seasons just to qualify for their inaugural postseason gives the Houston Texans the third-slowest rate. Only the New Orleans Saints (1967-87) and Atlanta Falcons (1966-78) fared worse.

    Wow, Most of my Cowboy friend fans were/are the ones trying to make it a rivalry. Despite what you say in your article the fact that your entire article is badmouthing the Texans I’d say you want a rivalry as well. Here’s the truth about NFL football in Texas. The Cowboys were 8-8 the last two years while the Texans were in the playoffs…

    WOW!!!!! Sounds like a very bitter Cowgirl fan still living in the glory of successes from many years ago. Currently, the Girls can’t make the playoffs and never will as long as Captain JJ is at the helm of that sinking ship.

  • OMG

    Lame. Texans are 5-5 against the Cowboys in head to head matchups. Let’s compare apples to apples here. The franchise has been building and going in a positive direction since Gary Kubiak came to town.
    Ask the country which team will be in the Super Bowl before the other.. Texans or Cowboys.
    Stop living in the 70s and 90s Cowboy fans.
